Reporting on League of Legends at [cybersport.com]( www.cybersport.com)

Highlights:

Tim tells me how persistence, sheer luck and never saying “no” led to him going from selling coffee to running a GameStop and eventually writing and talking about games.

We talk about whether esports could benefit from having tournaments based nationality and geography, just like traditional sports often have.

Did Blizzard invent esports?

My theory on why esports need to be free to play, or what Teemo calls “bums on seats”.

We talk about the difference between a writer and a storyteller.
